I love Murder Mystery/ Crime novels, so of course one of my favorite authors is Agatha Christie. So I chose Death on the Nile as my book ( I love the film too! )
I started with a white square card and stamped some script in red across the bottom as the Nile. I then cut a triangle in a piece of scrap paper and brayered over the hole in red ink, and then covered a section on the left side of the triangle and brayered over the hole a few more times. This leaves a shape like a pyramid, which I did a second time with a smaller triangle slightly behind, smaller, and paler than the first one. I then sponged across the bottoms of the pyramids to ground them. Next I stamped some grass and the sentiment in black ink, and unfortunately I made a few smudges so I stamped some fern leaves as a palm tree over them at the edge of the card. The placement of nearly every piece on this card would have been a nightmare if it was not for my Stamp-a-ma-jig!.
Anyway, smudges covered, here's the finished card
Recipe : Stamps = SU French Foliage (Nile), Inspired by Nature (grass), Organic Grace (Palm tree), and Woodware letters

I'm going to bed now so hopefully I'll get some sleep.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my blog, and I hope to be back soon.
